I plan to use this part list to play and record games in the Batman: Arkham series (including Arkham Knight when it comes out), and edit with Sony Vegas Movie Studio. Any suggestions? Send 'em in!

You could get a Radeon R9 290 for the price of the 770, and the 290 gets better performance.

What he said plus your going to want to throw in a CPU cooler and a slightly better mobo.

The 8350 comes with a cooler, and do you have any motherboard suggestions? I kind of like the one I have already.

A beefier cooler. Like an Evo 212.

As for mobo anything that'll fit your budget and is aesthetically pleasing. So maybe another $20 or $30 in that direction. The mobo you picked only supports up to 1333Mhz RAM.
